Management Accounts: For In-Depth Financial Intelligence
Business owners typically see management accounts as a reassurance of their existing beliefs about the company. The necessity for reliable management accounts remains essential, however, since it is challenging to foresee the future of the business.
At Outbooks, we work closely with business owners and accountants, carefully preparing and predicting the outcomes. Many business owners believe that steady cash flow throughout the year guarantees continued profitability.
Making guesses about a company’s finances is risky since there is no reliable data to back them up. Management accounts are crucial for eliminating risk and protecting your company's and its stakeholders' interests. Further, they are the first step toward gaining complete financial control.
It is challenging to create management accounts without reliable data. The need for management accounting holds everyone on the finance team accountable, from the credit controller who must continue chasing overdue payments to the purchase ledger clerk who maintains control over supplier accounts.
Having detailed and precise management accounts from experts at Outbooks will allow you to see where your company and its financial operations can improve!
Management Accounts - What we do

- Adjustment of each month to the previous year.
- Quantitative analysis of sales growth or decline.
- The fluctuations and increase in salaries.
- Variations in total revenue.
- Profitable services and their contribution to the bottom line.
- The expense of commission earners in comparison to their total sales.
- Client visits throughout the year.
- Client visits per revenue generator.
- Possible case study.
- Providing the context for numbers.
Who Should Prepare Management Accounts?
For business owners, the thought that management accounts would be useless since they already know what’s happening is common. To a certain point, this is correct!
However, remember that the financial picture can seem quite different from one month to the next and that a series of months with lower-than-expected profit or sales, for instance, can leave a company owner who believed they understood everything in for an unpleasant surprise.
If you care about your company’s well-being, you should prepare management accounts. Even if just the most fundamental metrics are reported, such as revenue, cost of sales, and overhead, a picture of the company’s health can be depicted. These can be made even if you don’t have a solid grasp of management accounting.
